Pochettino turned down European bid last season for Tottenham star

Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur is challenged by Pedro of Chelsea during the Premier League match between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge

Kane ended his drought with a brace for England on the first day of September and then scored twice against both Everton - including his 100th Spurs goal - and Borussia Dortmund for Mauricio Pochettino's men.

England boss Gareth Southgate was quick to call upon the Spurs man after injury had ruled Manchester City man Fabian Delph out of proceedings for the worldwide double header last week.

Pep Guardiola's Premier League leader spent in the region of £220million in the most recent transfer window as it completed an overhaul of the playing squad.

"In my case, personally, I did not take it in a bad way".

"I always said it was Barcelona or Pep Guardiola.

When it's exciting after an unbelievable victory against Chelsea, sometimes [he] can struggle to keep his position and be a gentleman", Pochettino said.

"When he was at Barca, I never said "the Messi team".

Asked if Guardiola had contacted him, Pochettino said: "No, of course not".

Pochettino has responded by mentioning the fact that Lionel Messi was Barcelona's standout player during the unforgettable Guardiola era at the Camp Nou - but he never highlighted that to suggest the Catalan giants were a one-man team.

"That is my opinion like I respect his opinion, but I don't think it will make the players more motivated or less motivated".

"I think everyone deserves to be recognised as part of the success of the team".

Plus a little video from the press conference.

Eriksen is one of the best and most creative midfielders in the world, and the Denmark global will be key to Spurs' chances of picking up all three points against Bournemouth.
